Relevant FAQs

Q. What is steel detailing?


Detailing is the production of detailed plans and drawings for use  by steel fabricators and erectors. The specialist CAD drawings help the fabricators and welders understand the exact requirements for fabricating each individual piece of steel.  The drawings also help  the steel erectors to know how to erect the fabricated steel. The detailer creates the drawings using Tekla software so that the exact detailing requirements for fabrication are provided. This includes material specifications plus dimensions, welding, bolting, and other necessary information. For more details on Adey Steel's detailing capabilities click here.

Q. What is Tekla software?


Tekla is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) software that is widely used at Adey Steel. It allows our designers to create 3D structural models in steel, and guide users through the detailing, fabrication and installation processes of a project.
